If you're not booting over ethernet, you won't need it.  And, even then,
you may not need it.  Taken from the dhcpd.conf man file from FC4,
below, the requirement may change depending on your circumstances, but
the purpose won't.

       The next-server statement

          next-server server-name;

          The next-server statement is used to specify the host address of the
          server from which the initial boot file (specified in  the  filename
          statement)  is  to  be  loaded.   Server-name should be a numeric IP
          address or a domain name.   If no next-server parameter applies to a
          given client, the DHCP server’s IP address is used.
